The rumour is it’ll be under £100 before Christmas. Why? Retails sources say that if microsoft intends to launch Xbox 2 before Christmas 2005, it’s got one holiday season left in which to really flog the Xbox as hard as possible.
microsoft has so far denied that it has plans to reduce price, with this statement: “We have made no announcements regarding a price drop for Xbox in Europe. We are very happy with where we are in Europe – we are a strong number two in the industry, have innovated and succeeded with Xbox Live, and have a fantastic line-up of titles on the way like Doom III, Forza, Full Spectrum Warrior, Fable and of course Halo 2. We’re well positioned for a strong 2004.”
